at the 18th International Esperanto Congress, August, 1926* 


ESPERANTO is founded on the Latin Alphabet and by the 
addition of new letters [c g; h J §] gives an extended scope 
for new sounds, and maintains uniform sounds fol' all the letters* 
There has been for a long time a desire for a logical spelling, and 
at the present time there is quite a bewildering series of schemes 
for arranging the old letters for newer sounds. At the present 
time Africa is spelt two ways— the British use the '■ c" and the 
Dutch the "k," and both ways appear on the postage stamps 
The sturdy " k " is being crushed out of useful existence. Dr 
Andrew Carnegie, (a native of Fifeshire, who, when Chancellor 1 
of the University of St Andrews gifted £13,000 for spelling re- 
form), must have noticed how unsatisfactorily the sOund of this 
letter is treated. In Cupar it is •' C," while in the adjoining 
parishes of Kemback and Kilmany it is " K." Ceres it is pro- 
nounced Seres. In Kirkcaldy both '* K " and "c" are usedj and 
also an " 1 " which is not sounded at all. It is amusing to listen 

to visitors trying to spell or pronounce place names. . 

For example, "ch " usurps the place of " k '' in the word school, 
and the letter " u' - is removed from its proper place for " 00." 

The Fonetik Society was founded on ist March, 1843, and its 
second and third objects were tu introduce ah improvd modern 
method of teechingtu reed the present buks by first Using fonetik 
buks ; and to reform the orthografi of the English language, by 
the use, in riting and printing, of an alfabet which contains a 
distinct leter for eech different sound used 

*The Esperanto letters are known all over the World. They 
can be had from type founders at ordinary prices. Any persons 
who know the Latin alphabet and have the extra letters printed 
abqy<j "named to them, can read right away, Language so easily 
read can surely be easily learned, That was shown so be the case 
with the first excursion of Esperantists to Scotland in 1907. "We 
intend to repeat the experiment in the next issue of our •' Shots- 
at Hame and Abroad." 

The English language has a big start over all others, and it 
only requires an extension of Pi$nan's fonetik loflghahd letters to 
make it as universal and unapproachable as its winged Shorthand, 
We intend to show how in an early issue of our latest international

BUTE COUNTY DIRECTORY, aa that, being dated, forme the only eTidenee 

of its currant?. 


WE have pleasure in producing another issue of our 
hardy Annual. 

The early numbers contained the Officials and House- 
holders ox Buteshire only. The Anniversaries and Traders 
were absorbed from the West Coast Almanac, issued at 
the New Year, and embracing districts outside Buteshire 
—the phenominal success of which in Mid Argyll, led to 
the establishment of the printing office in Lochgilphead. 

Rothesay is the most attractive and best known. We 
would like to see its spirit of enterprise spreading among 
the other districts. They have each and all something to 
be proud of. These cannot be properly appreciated until 
better known. In the present Directory we continue the 
four distinct parts : viz., Anniversaries, Officials, House- 
holders and Traders. 

This Directory is not only at hand for reference at all 
times throughout the whole county, but it is also ready for 
reference in the public libraries of Scotland, England, Ire- 
land and Wales, and also in numerous business houses and 
agencies in busy centres ; besides this, we send copies to 
the passenger steamers communicating with the islands of 
Buteshire, and these are hung up in their cabins. 

The Public Libraries as a rule do not subscribe to 
other than the few large National Directories. The more 
numerous and detailed District Directories would cost too 
much. For years we have sent, complimentarily, copies of 
ours — which are much appreciated ; and we are prepared 
to increase this m umber by forwarding other free copies 
to any Libraries to be named by customers giving orders 
to the value of £1. 

As our Advertising friends appreciate the continued 
distribution of their announcements facing the ordinary 
reading matter, we will, on receipt of orders early, keep 
permanent this decided advantage. 

We again give list of Householders but do not aspire 
to compete with the official Voters' Roll — for which we 
are assessed, and anyone can buy in whole or in parts. 

Our best thanks are again accorded to those who have 
in any way helped us in this compilation. It takes long 
and car ef ul vigilance to ascertain and give effect to the 
■continual changes.

The Opinions of the Press and the Acknowledgments of Libraries 
ar« as complimentary as ever. The " Glasgow Evening News " makes the following 
appreciation of " Local Colour. — The compilers of the Bute County Directory 
have an ingenious method of making up the local colour and stimulating local pride 
instead of filling up the Calendar with the stock anniversaries, they have put against 
each date a local happening." Thus — [Two events mentioned]. " It is certainly an 
idea that makes for ' atmosphere. ' "

Parish of North Bute. 

HPHIS is the northern portion of the island of Bute. Port-Bannatyne, its principal' 
-*- village, is two and a-half miles from Rothesay, with which it is connected by tram- 
way. Karnes Castle, in the vicinity, is said to be the oldest inhabited castle in the 
country, and was the ancient seat of the Bannatynes. The village was named after 
that family — two brothers of whom (John and Gilbert) — received a charter from King 
Robert the Bruce, for services rendered at Banuockburn. 

At the 1921 census, (taken in June instead of April) the parish contained 1201 
males and 1529 females — total, 2730. The 1931 census, taken in April, showed the 
population of tha Island outside o Rothesay to be 2,779

The Bute County Directory 

is the only Publication of the kind printed and 
published in Buteshire. Its data is carefully 
compiled, and much time and attention is devoted 
each year to the careful investigation and noting 
of the necessary alterations in the personnel ©f the 
occupants of public offices, the correct addresses 
of the general inhabitants, and the latest changes 
amongst those engaged in business. 

The earliest publications connected with Rothe- 
say were Directories, and they are interesting 
reading even at this time of day. 

Our publication not only includes the Burgh of 
Rothesay (where it has long been most appreciated, 
but embraces the whole of the County of Bute — 
from the outlying districts of which more interest 
is respectfully solicited. 

Owing to the increased prices of material and 
wages, we have been compelled to raise our tariff 
rom pre-war issues, but that advance is not nearly 
equal to the increased cost of production : We de- 
sire not the curtailing of our information, but the 
•continuing of everything as full as possible.

The Isle of Arran. 

' P'HIS island, the largest in the group, is famous for the grandeur of its scenery and 
1 the variety of its geological deposits. The island is 36 miles in length, 
20 in breadth, and is divided into two parishes — Kilbride on the east, and Kilmory 
in the west. The late King Edward and Queen Alexandra spent a very pleasant 
holiday in the island after their postponed Coronation in August, 1902, and witnessed 
some very interesting sheep dog trials — which lengthened their stay

A SPRIG of SCOTS HEATHER is as lightly thought of at 
hame as a drink of cold water (of which there is more than 
enough to spare), but it is an inspiration and a valued remindej 
of the pleasantest "of memories to Scots and their friends abroad. 

The exchange of national floral emblems will yet become ex- 
ceedingly popular among those who work for human brotherhood. 

We produced Victory Commemoration Bookmarks — in con- 
nection with the Armistice, the Signing of Peace and the succeed- 
ing Joy Day Celebrations, — which were considered very appro- 

Remember Friends Abroad. 

While enjoying holidays remember to gather sprigs to send to 
friends abroad, or in response to appeals you will see in leading 
Scottish weekly newspapers. 

We have for years sent boxesfull of heather to friends and so 
cieties abroad. We frequently respond to newspaper appeals, and 
the following is a sample of the acknowledgments received :, — 

East London, C. P., So. Africa, 18th Dec. 
Mr George Biggie, 22 Bridge St., Rolhesay, Scotland. 

On behalf of the East London Caledonian Society I wish to thank you for being 
10 kind in responding to my appeal for heather, which was sold on our Patro n Saints 
Day, and realised the very handsome sum of £265 5/11, and has been forwarded to- 
the fund for disabled Sailors and Soldiers The heather was received in first-class 
condition, and was much prized — Yours faithfully, Jabies Forbes, 

Convener of Heather Committee. 

It is not only Scots abroad who enjoy a sprig of something that actually grew 
at hame. The Glasgow ' Evening Times,' while the above acknowledgment was on the 
ocean, printed the following ; — " Flower girls in Argyle Street are making brave dis- 
play with the mimosa, which comes to us from the Continent before the swallows or 
even the daffodils dare. It is one of the indications, after the shortest day, that 
somewhere the sun is shining, and that winter is waning. Australians in town are 
greatly cheered by the golden glory, for the mimosa is the wattle of their homeland, 
carrying with it the same significance as the heather to a Scot abroad." 

Colonials and others on holiday in this country, have thanked us personally for 
sending them souvenirs of Scotland when far away; and others have reciprocated by 
sending preserved leaves and flowers from their distant lands. 

Th« exchange of national floral emblems will yet become exceedingly popular. 
Botanical Specimens go through the post at letter, sample or parcel rates.

TION are conducted during the two Winter Quarters — 
October till December and January till March. 

Shorthand continues to be taught with a view to its subsequent useful 
ness in Business and Professionally. 

In Typewriting" special attention is devoted to Punctuation and Capital- 
isation — a thorough knowledge of which is absolutely necessary in Practical Printing 
and cannot longer be neglected by those aspiring to be First-Class Typists. 

Esperanto. — This wonderful International Language is already used for 
Business and Pleasure in all parts of the world. Mr Higgie is in touch with import- 
ant regions all over the world, and regularly corresponds with persons everywhere 
— notwithstanding their different national languages. 

This auxiliary language anticipates the happy time when there will be ' ' Peace 
on earth and good will to men," which is coming yet in spite of the present times of 
" great tribulation" — caused by covetousness, selfishness, greed, and wanton hindrance 
to peaceful re construction. The efficacy of the International language in tracing miss- 
ing friends and making new ones has been and is being repeatedly evidenced. 

Anticipating the boom in International Trading after the World War, experi- 
ments by means of inter-correspondence in Esperanto are being made by business firms 
throughout the world with eminently satisfactory results. It is not the tyrants but the 
"meek who shall inherit the earth." The blatant, self-righteous and arrogant despost 
were beaten, but Righteousness is yet to be exalted, and frightfulness loathei. The 
longed-for League of Nations is evolving, when harmony and good-will shall yet reign 
in spite of all present discord and opposition — but not without many sacrities, much 
service and suffering. Prosperity will not come through desiring something for no- 
thing, but through universal patient industry for the public good. 

Book-Keeping 1 .— Instruction given in Book-Keeping and other Up-to- 
Date Business Methods. Advertisement Writing is a Present Day Enviable Proa 
fession, and the ground-work and minutiae have long been familiar to Mr Higgie,

at the 18th International Esperanto Congress, August, 1926 

ESPERANTO is founded on the Latin A If abet and by fc'ie 
addition of new letters [6 g n ) s] gives an extended scoi e 
for new sounds, and maintains uniform sounds for all the letters. 
There has been for a long time a desire for a logical spelling, and 
at the present time there is quite a bewildering series of schemes 
for arranging the old letters for newer sounds. At the present 
time Africa is spelt two ways — the British u«e the '• c " and the 
Dutch the "k," and both ways appear on the postage slumps 
The sturdy "k" is being crusht out of useful existence. l)r 
Andrew Carnegie, (a native of Fifeshire, Who, when Chancellor 
of the University of St Andrews gifted £13,000 for spelling re- 
form), must hav noticed how unsatisfactorily the sound of this 
letter is treated. In Cupar it is '■ C," while in the adjoining 
parishes of Kemback and Kilmany it is " K." Ceres it is pro- 
nounced Seres. In Kirkcaldy both "K" and "c" ar used, and 
also an " 1 " which is not sounded at all. It is amusing to listen 

to visitors trying to spell or pronounce place names 

For example, "ch " usurps the place of "k '' in the word school 
and the letter " u'' is removed from its proper place for " 00.''- . 

The Fonetik Society was founded on 1st March, 1843, an< ^ ' t9 
second and third objects wer tu introduce an improvd modern 
method of teechingtu reed the present buks by first using fonetik 
buks ; and to reform the orthografi of the English language, by 
the use, in riting and printing, of an alfabet which contains a 
distinct leter for eecn different sound used 

*The Esperanto letters are known all over the world. They 
can be had from type founders at ordinary prices. Any persons 
who know the Latin alfabet and hav the extra letters printed 
above named to them, can red right away, Language so easily 
led can surely be easily lerned. That was shown to be the case 
with the first excursion of Esperantists to Scotland in 1907. We 
intend to repeat the experiment in the next issue. of our " Skots 
at Hsm. and Abrod." 

The English language has a big start over all others, and it 
only requires an extension of Pitman's fonetik longhand letters to 
make it as universal and unapproachable as its winged Shorthand. 

With assistance, we hope to show how in the subsequent issues 
ol our latest international publication.

Our Local Directory 




THE HE are (or were) other BUSINESS DIKECTORIES*

Anniversaries, Institutions, Officials, Householders and Business

Advertisements received early are plated next reading matter : — 
For the special benefit of Residenters and Visitors, copies of the Directory are 
sent to the Buteshire Post Offices on payment of postage. 
We will continue our complimentary circulation among the Principal Public Libraries 
throughout the British Isles. 
We make a long and diligent search for alterations in present public institutions 
throughout Buteshire, and shall be glad to have notification of same, and also list of 
•ffice-bearers of any new society. We wish no interest to be overlooked in our little but 
both popular and select county. This reference year-book is the only one for our 
thire: it is found not only throughout but beyond it, and we wish to make our compila- 
tion as correct as possible. To make for efficiency, please send all commications earl//. 
Prospectuses, of course, are free: after their issue and before the Directory is 
printed the Public may be called upon bv a representative from this office, but then 
it will be too late to choose positions for Advertisements or make large additions. NOW 
is the time'to give orders and prevent disappointment. Alterations can be made later. 
All the type is kept standing, and the forms are delivered to the machine room at 
one time, promptly printed and the sheets smartly delivered to waiting bookbinders. 

Those who only desire a copy of the Directory should not fail to send in an order 
before we go to press ; otherwise they will forfeit the concession and perhaps fail to 
get a copy at all. 

*We warn the Public against being beguiled by strange ca7ivassers who pretend 

to be associated with us. 
All communications sent to 22 Bridge Street, will have careful attention

Dear Sirs, — Thank you very much for sending me the assortment of ivy leaves, 
which have been much admired. I showed them to several Scots on St Andrew's 
Day, and in each case the verdict has been the same. The leaves were considered 
a marvel. 

It may interest you to see my Year-Book, a copy of which I enclose. Please ac- 
copt with my best wishes. Believe me, yours faithfully, TOHN "nOTTPr A^

More than Christians believe that the Whole Human Family 
will yet live together as Brethren. 

THE GREAT CREATOR OF ALL made of one blood all races of Humanity 
but our forefathers got separated and estranged. The confusion of tongues 
did not cause them to be ii religious, the phenominal success of the Boy Scout move- 
ment, generaled by Sir Robert Baden Powell, demonstrates that latent good-fellow- 
ship, gratitude and honour can grow and mature. Long ago, the Prophet Zephaniah 
foretold the coming Gf a perfect language — which, in these latter times, the people 
are longing for in order to overcome misunderstandings and know and enjoy mutual 
intarcourse in business and pleasure. The walls of Jericho fell very simply, and the 
liugual walls which have hitherto divided the nations, need no longer prevent all 
people that on earth do dwell — -whatever their creeds, colour or idiosyncrasies — from 
satisfactorily communicating with each other by means of

The International Language. 

Up-to Date Mariners use the International Code of Signals at sea. 
Up-to-Date Musicians use the International Staff Notation for Music.

Esperanto, like English, is made up from other languages : its roots are taken 
from the same jungle, but scientifically treated in a garden pro bono publico. 

The 11 th Annual International Congress was to have been held in Edinburgh in 
1915, but the Great War, which prevented the holding the 1 th ill Paris the previous 
year, was the means of causing the transfer of the 11th to San Francisco. To com- 
memorate the opening of the Panama Canal a big Exhibition was held,there, and a Tuta 
Pacifika Esperanto Kongreso developed into the 11a Tuta Mondo Esperanto Kongresoa 
The 12th Kongreso Internacia was held at th Hague., Holland in 1920; the 
13th at Prague, in 1921; the 14th at Helsingfors, Finland, in 1922; the 15th at 
Niirnberg in 1923, the lfitli at Vienna in 1924, the 17th the following August again at 
Geneva; and the 18th at Edinburgh, in 1926 (when the Holy Bible, in 
Esperanto, was dedicated in St Giles' Cathedral). National congresses are held an- 
nually in all civilised conntries, and international congresses in both hemispheres. 

Esperanto—the language of Peace on Earth and universal brotherhood — is steadily 
spreading. It is much easier to learn and comprehend than any national language, and 
does the work of all. On the Continent during the Great War it wai an incalculable 
blessing to Red Cross work and tracing the missing. It was a veritable open sesame 
into everything good. The world-wide Boy Scout movement has taken up the study 
of la kara lingvo. It is used at the great and happy international Jamborees — 
meetings so harmonious that they are appropriately closed by the singing of "Auld 

Esperanto has been adooted by the League of Nations. League of Religions, and 
numerous business firms, tourist organisations and scientific societies everywhere. 
It. is. of course, regularly broadcast by wireless. 

The pronunciation of English is demonstrated by adoption of the new Esperanto 
letters, which are known throughout the world. Sorts can be had at ordinary prices 
from typefounders everywhere.

Translated into tl • Help-Lingvo Esperanto, and was found 

(at the 2nd International Congress, at Geneva, in 1906), 

to be the first-printed National Guide Book in la Kara Lingvo.

At he Annual Congress of the British Esperanto Association, held at Cheltenham,

The introductory pages of Bonnie Scotland's Resorts translated 

into Phonetic Longhand in commemoration of the Centenary of 

Sir lsaao Pitman. The substituted letters for the new sounds 

were not satisfactory, but we have managed to get (and 

pay for, without assistance) a font of typecast, which 

we began to use in our speling reform publication, 

SKOTS at HSM and ABROD and who wi' dem ferrgeder. 
which shows, not only the necessity for an adequate alphabet, 

but how the whole world will benefit, and peace, honor, 
good-will and prosperity be promoted. 44 pages (salved) 2d. 
24 years ago, a deputation from the third Esperanta KuiL'reso Internacia visited three 
places in Skotland, viz., Edinburgh, Glasgow and Rothesay, and while sailing out of 
Sweet Rothesay Bay on a pleasant cruise round the Isle of Bute, they were so charmed 
that they enjoy«d singing Auld Lahg.syne in the Skots Doric -Esperanto letters being 
introduced. When the Bible in Esperanto, was dedicated ih St Giles' Cathedral 
Edinburgh in 1926, there was another pleasure excursion to the West of Scotland, 
but a large steamer had to be specially chartered for this occasion. Sroj. Higgie & 
Kio., had a verda stnndardo flying at Rothesay in honourof the visitors.
